Re: lorna, where are you?

Well, one way or the other, I think we can all agree Lorna has made her mark!

Re: lorna, where are you?

First Smitty then Lorna, they were both a wealth of information but I guess that's the way it goes. Live or learn or crash and burn. I gotta run some miles and burn some fuel, C,ya bye!!

Re: lorna, where are you?

Das Mel,
Sorry you gotta read this stuff here about your mum. I know she wears here emotions on the end of her shirt sleeves but so be it. She seems well meaning and like solid people. She had some good, cheap idea's about conversion. I PM'd her not long ago on some door instructions and she got back to me pronto; so she's around. She pointed me at a nice site she has up about the bus. I'm all about cheap so I liked her info.
We all got idea's about how these bus projects should go. We all have different uses for our buses. Mine is supposed to save me money. It is obvious looking at some of these builds that cost is not a huge concern. Hey that's good if you've got the money to do it. Just not my style is all.

I'd rather be creepy at people in person. I can SHOW YOU (not sure just HOW, though) I ain't mein Mutter. Whether or not you'd actually believe it is entirely up to ya, not me.

Look, mates, I can understand that things got outta hand. Crap was spewed and mud was slung and it made a lot of people butthurt about it. Like Cal said, life goes on. Big whoop and alla that jazz. I look at it this way; in a hundred years it ain't agonna matter much, so why bother? No, seriously, why are you bothering?

Oi, Syke, I got the information wrong. Mum won't be deleting anything. Bad info on my part, I apologize. Pleeeeease don't haaaaate meeeeeee! I'mma be so LOOOOONELY WIT'OUT'CHA!

...wait, Lonely or Looney? I can never remember.

Re: lorna, where are you?

Didn't know Smitty so can't say. Did know Lorna and---well--we all have our opinions I guess. Perhaps the latest change will encourage others to pick up the seeming slack and offer up their knowledge and experience as the forum continues. In my opinion that would be a good thing.

I'm not buying it. They write totally different and Das Mel has a self deprecating humor. Even if you smoked crack with the Mayor of Toronto, you couldn't say that about Ms. L with a straight face.

As far as I'm concerned, she is welcome here but if she is going to throw a hissyfit every seven minutes and be shitty, maybe it's good that she has gone into hiding.
The irony in L.'s departure lies in this post of hers on a different thread: "Are you finished giving everyone a verbal spanking yet? Let it go. Talk about beating a dead horse. Or are you a "self appointed expert" in protocol, manners and etiquette? Let's lighten up people [emphasis added]. ..."

Double standard alert! OK, sorry for stretching this thread further; just thought the above was...um, interesting.

Re: lorna, where are you?

I'm eating homemade glutenfree waffle RIGHT NOW.

Someone pass the butter and quit hogging the syrup!
